Free housing and various learning-apprenticeships in South of France against help

Free housing and various learning apprenticeships in the South of France against help!


Bonjour, I am Cyp, an open-minded self-educated French man, well-travelled and well-educated with good life experience in various fields.
I want to turn my house in an open-minded international guest house, open to naturism, in which people could also learn lots of things such as French, English, massages, cooking, automobile mechanic, martial arts tricks, building works, car driving and trailer reversing and much more…in a nutshell: share my various skills.

So I am on the lookout for 1 to 2 persons, willing to learn any various handy works, not lazy!!! , capable to handle various physical works from building works, gardening, woodcutting etc… so if you have any issues with your nails ^^, dirty hands or sweating or what else I ignore…. spare me your request.
I am a nice, tolerant and cool guy but a hard worker so for this exchange you must be able to consider first what you gonna learn from me before counting the hours worked. Because I will commit myself to teach you all I know as partly described above.

What type of host are you?
  • Private/Individual/family

Note about the volunteer work and other expectations
  • Willing to learn all kinds of handy works.
  • No smoking inside.
  • Open-minded and tolerant.
  • Passionate about learning.
  • Willing to learn how to do things right.

  • Patient and willing to do things with great attention to detail when necessary.
  • A person who likes doing jobs properly: not working in a neglectful way. I hate that.

I can obviously accept girls, provided they can handle hard work. I would like to learn Japanese so Japanese is very welcome.

  1. Hi! My friend and I are interested in being there and having a great experience, we both are students and would be available for like 4-5 days from the 16th to the 19th, could you please check the possibility of a stay and let me know if you are free to host us on these days?
    Thank you so much
